Nobody voted 22LR? Crazy talk...

If SHTF, my Marlin model 60 is what I'm walking out with....and one of my 9mm pistols.

.45acp as it’s what I first learned to shoot and appreciate it’s cartridge. But I do tend to like the 9mm very much.

I used to be all about the .45... but once I started shooting 9mm, due to economic reasons, (4 people in household all shooting) I really started to like it. Now 9mm is about all I carry and shoot. Every once in awhile I feel nostalgic and carry a .45, and of course I have a nuclear launching 10mm for when I really want to have fun. But day to day it is a 9

9mm for me too. Good enough stopping power with modern ammo, high capacity, easy to find, etc.

Yeah but he carried a 44 special light load for more control. Think that was in Magnum Force, ill have to watch it now that I spoke of it.

I have been a .44 Mag & .45 Win Mag fan for many years. I live in the Brown Bear Country and always carry one in a cross chest rig while horse packing. My choice the past 2 years is the 10MM. Most everyone it seems is now carrying the 10MM.
The 10MM can deliver over 2 tons of accurate energy in seconds. I have the Rock Island 1911 FS, Ruger SR 1911 and the SIG P-220 Elite Hunter. These are all great with heavy 200 grn hard cast powder coated bullets.
